THE ROUTE

FAST TRACKING THE UK FLEET EVOLUTION

GB EV Rally will begin at the ‘Top of the UK’, at the stunning Castle & Gardens of Mey, the home of HRH The Queen Mother and will immediately head to John O’Groats, It will finish at its ‘Foot’, in Lands End. The Rally follows on from the hugely successful EVROS event, staged during COP26, and this time, we aim to push the boundaries of what’s possible, even further. 

Leaving in a fanfare, the vehicles will split into two groups, with cars heading west, along the north coast, while the commercials head south, using the ‘Electric A9’, before they eyeball each other from each end of Loch Ness.

Co-drivers will accompany the Drivers, and act as eNavigators, plotting the route, from charge point to charge point, and after overnight stops in Oban (cars) and Dundee (commercials), we head further south, across the border to Cheadle and Leeds, respectively.

Day 3 sees both sets of vehicles arrive at Rockingham, Corby for an EV Challenge and from then on, the Rally ‘stays as one’, finishing the day in Milton Keynes. 

Day 4 sees us swing by the GRIDSERVE Electric Forecourt in Braintree, before we head into London, and back out to drive west to Bristol.

Our final day will see the vehicles cross the Welsh border, to Cardiff, before heading back again to head south-west, taking in Exeter and then finishing in Lands End! 

1200+ eMiles… UNBELIEVABLE!

CHECKING IN

ENGAGING AT EVERY CHECKPOINT…

There will be 2 or 3 Daily Checkpoints along the route, some of which will be EV charge points… 

This enables us to demonstrate the public infrastructure and network that already exists and is only going to get bigger and better, as we move toward 2030. Other Checkpoints will be iconic UK landmarks, to help with creative imagery.

At each BRANDED Checkpoint, the drivers and their eNavigators will exit the vehicle, take a picture and post on social media, using the key event #hashtags.

We expect Twitter and LinkedIn to be awash with fleet professionals watching the Rally unfold and we hope that some will congregate at the Checkpoints to welcome us in and wave us off.

Full details of the Official Checkpoints will be published in due course, after the planning has been concluded with our Charging Partners.

We will have our camera crew on hand, with Chris Ramsey and John Curtis doing LIVE interviews and broadcasting across the social media platforms, and here on gbevrally.co.uk

Progress of the Rally will be shown live, using innovative tracking technology, so watch this space for more announcements on how you can follow GBEVR… LIVE!
